President Nana Akufo-Addo has commended the new leadership of the Electoral Commission led by Jean Mensa for passing its first by organizing a “free, fair and transparent” election.
In a congratulatory message on the outcome of the referenda held on Thursday, the president also applauded the security agencies and the media for their roles in the exercise.
“The new leadership of the Electoral Commission is to be commended for passing its first test by ensuring the holding of free, fair and transparent referenda,” he said.
“The security agencies and members of the media are also to be applauded for the invaluable roles played towards the success of this exercise,” he added.
The areas affected by the referenda voted overwhelmingly for the creation of new regions.
Six more regions will now be added to the already 10 regions.
